    ‘93 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

    So I foolishly started looking for a nice ‘93 to ‘96 Fleetwood Brougham to add to my stable. This generation of the Fleetwood was the last of the big RWD Caddy sedans. I know I know, the Riviera guy bought a Cadillac. But they’re cool too, right? . Eldorado2k understands.



    Anyway, I just picked up this excellent Cotillion White w/Garnet Red interior ‘93 (with just under 42k miles) on Monday and proceeded to give it a thorough detail. For those of you who are interested (and you wouldn’t have clicked on this thread if you weren’t ). Here’s what I did:

    • Cleaned fender wells with Meguiar’s Super Degreaser, and wheels/tires with P&S Brake Buster

    • Presoak foam with McKee’s 37 Coating Prep Auto Wash + a little Optimum Power Clean

    • Rinsed then chemical decon with Griots Iron & Fallout Remover

    • Rinsed then contact wash with McKee’s 37 Coating Prep Wash and rinsed again. Moved from the driveway into the shop

    • Mechanical decon with clay mitt and Griots Speed Shine for lube. Dried each panel when completed.

    • After a test spot, polished with Tac Systems Refinish Ultra on Lake Country Orange Foam Pads using Flex 3401. After a few sections, polished out the glass with pads before changing them out for a fresh one

    • Went around again with Dr. Beasley’s NSP Z1 on Lake County White Foam Pads. Let it cure for 24 hours

    • Applied Tac Systems 1-Step Master as final LSP. Used it on all paint and plastic trim

    • Cleaned and protected chrome and stainless steel trim with Mother’s All Chrome

    • Protected wheels with Polish Angel Supersport PTFE and dressed tires with Adam’s Graphene Tire Dressing

    • Cleaned interior with Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel, Hybrid Solutions Interior Mist Detailer, and Hybrid Solutions Leather Mist. Finished with Sonax Glass Cleaner on all glass inside and out

    Thanks for looking and happy detailing!

    Ain’t nothin lackin when your Cadillacin! Beautiful ride sir.

    Funny that 10 years ago these could be had next to nothing. Now i feel the market’s corrected and i’m finding nice examples for 20-30k. You found a nice one.

    Wow! look at that "Cream Puff" Cadillac. Looks like it's in great condition. I miss vehicles having big plush leather seats.

    I'd be rocking the HuggyBear pimp outfit in that car
